October Favourites | 2018

10/30/2018



October was a very weird month. With some of the hottest and coldest days of the year, strange things in my personal life and new discoveries beauty-wise. I wouldn't believe it would be like this if someone had told me beforehand.

Work wise, I had the most terrible experience in my life. I won't be telling in detail what happened, but my advise is no never, EVER, accept an internship without knowing the full conditions that will be presented to you. It was a rather setback that did not help me mentally but that thankfully I am totally over it. I'm finally into what I really should be.


The perfect eye team

This was a month of discoveries and re-discoveries in the eyeshadow department. In a recent post, I shared how I recently bought a new eyeshadow primer because I felt like I needed a new and good one. I am pleased to say that the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is my new favourite and that I am more than happy about this acquisition. The eyeshadows look brighter and stay in place for the longest time. The real question is: why didn't I get this earlier?
And the obvious re-discovery was the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette. It has the perfect warm shadows for this season and the quality is speechless. I am seriously thinking about getting one of their next releases because I am yet to find a brand that can consistently release products with quality and without much fuzz. My favourite shades this month were Substitute for Love, Freshly Toasted and Warm Notes

The New & the Old, the Regular & the Unspoken 

I could not do a favourites post this month without mentioning the Soph x Revolution Lipstick in Fudge, which became one of my favourite nude lipstick. It has a beautiful shade, it's easy to apply and it's super comfortable. Obviously it won't survive a full meal like a liquid lipstick, but it is easy to re-apply. Have I said how much I love the packaging?
Following that, I am again mentioning the Sephora Lip Stain in 41 Vintage Rosewood because it has been living in my handbag alongside Fudge. It's a staple I cannot live without because it will look good no matter what and stay in place. Can't beat a regular like that. (although there's something on the way that might shake things up!)
An old favourite that got rediscovered recently is my Bourjois Poudre de Riz, which is a gorgeous luminous loose powder that I have been afraid of wearing for the longest time. I recently decided to switch things a bit up and use this more as a setting powder. It helps to set my makeup but it also gives a beautiful glow, not leaving my skin super flat.
And lastly but not least, the Nature Republic Peppermint Clay Mask was meant to be featured earlier but for some reason that did not happen. This clay mask has a very specific scent that too me is very similar o Lush's clay mask. The difference is that this mask does stay or feel like an usual clay mask, looking more pasty. The smell and the mint can be problematic to more sensitive skins (to me it just tingles at the beginning and then it gets comfortable) but I love how my skin looks when I rinse it off from my skin.



What were you loving in October? Anything spooky to share?
